Bangkok’s gay night-life is the hub of South-east Asia for good reason. It boasts some of the best – be it great bars and clubs, saunas or inventive go-go boy shows – when it comes to catering to the rainbow crowd.
Bangkok’s LBGT scene is so active you can party seven nights a week and still find new places to discover, but our list of best gay experiences in Bangkok is a great place to start – whether you want to dip a toe into the community or dive in head first.
Prepare to be blown away by a variety of fun and decadent delights tailored to all the kings, queens and everything in between in this ‘City of Angels’.
DJ Station ,Silom
At the far end of the cul-de-sac of Silom Soi 2, this three-level club kicks off each night with a series of lip-syncing divas before things get hard and heavy as sweaty topless boys take to the stage. Indulge in cheap drinks and an excellent music selection – guaranteed to make even the most reluctant dancing queen shake her groove
This lovely men’s complex feature wet and dry saunas, it also houses a dark maze, well-equipped gym, pool, restaurant, private cabins and hotel rooms. A firm favourite among local and international visitors, Babylon has something for everyone. Whatever rocks your boat, lose the garb and get lost (or found) in this ancient city, where its exclusively male inhabitants are perpetually ready, willing and able
Silom Soi 4
Long-established gay nightlife spot, Silom Soi 4 is known for its small concentration of restaurants, bars, karaoke as well as award-winning pubs like Telephone and Balcony Bar.
The overall atmosphere here is jovial and friendly. And if you enjoy dramatic diva impersonations or random fashion shows, stick around for the lip-syncing staged nightly right in the middle of the street.
Soi 4 is set up with bars down both sides, tables outside facing into the street. This setup gives every table a clear view people walking on the street, and of the people sitting outside the bar opposite. With numerous bar, Silom Soi 4 is ideal for bar hopping. The most popular bars on the Silom Soi 4 are Stranger Bar, Balcony Bar and Telephone Bar.
That is just a small top of an iceberg folks. I will be coming back with more after my trip to Bangkok in two weeks time.
Start planning your South-East Asia trip and packing your bags. YOU WILL LOVE IT!
